André Júlio TurquesaPortugal
André Júlio Turquesa is one of those who disarm us with disconcerting ease. This multi-instrumentalist knows how to surprise us with his audacious — and sometimes lush — folk, but always well orchestrated. He likes to knit the kind of music in which you can curl up with pleasure, embroidered with wilder jazz inspirations. A talent for composition already at the service of theater, cinema and television for that matter. And when he sings in Portuguese, English or French with his fiery voice, his sincerity touches our hearts. His 4th LP is eagerly awaited and it has every reason to be: his latest record Orgônio is among the 50 best Portuguese albums of 2020.
